We are Pics & Ink - a new way of buying interesting and unusual magazines, the type most people can’t find in their local newsagent.
The internet is great, it means we can access pretty much anything from pretty much anywhere. Magazines have yet to benefit from this. We aren’t about reading magazines online because we really like the touch, smell and beauty of great paper.
So let us be your guide through the world of independent magazines. We’ll tell you about them, show you a few pages, then we will pack them up very carefully and post them to your door.
In our first issue of 2020 we bring you the inside story of Bob Dylan’s most diverse, divisive and fascinating decade – the 1970s…
Dylan made eight hugely different studio albums in those 10 years, and we’ve rounded up some of his closest confidants and bandmates to tell the tale. It’s a must-read for any fan of Mr Zimmerman.
Elsewhere in issue 35, our packed interviews section features Angel Olsen, Seth Lakeman, The Go-Betweens, Field Music, DJ Shadow and Courteeners, plus we take an in-depth look at The Doors’ Morrison Hotel and meet the music fanatics behind America’s coolest label group – Secretly Canadian.
If that’s not enough, we bring you 40 essential folk-rock classics, a guide to building your perfect hi-fi setup in 2020 and the usual eclectic mix of vinyl columnists, news and reviews.
